Thanks Milo. Our buddies, King O D Road, will be down for the New Years get together, and we'll join them for the gathering at Dead Horse.

I'd be heading down there right now excepting for appointments that can't be changed. Last one is Jan 19 and on the 20th we will be facing south, weather permitting. We are very excited to finally get some time away. A great test of Donna's towing skills. Oh yeah, and she says her skills at ignoring sage driving advice come from the passenger side .

Still sorting out the best route to take and snow will be a big factor in the decision. Either I-5 to CA and then east if the roads are clear, or 101 down the coast till we run out of snow, then head east. Will be using the truck this time given potential weather issues - don't want to beat the wagon to death.

Have fun in Q.

Great to hear you finally have heading south in your future. My pro tip is take the shortest easiest route to below the snow line.

As said before. We have a "courtesy camping" space for you in the yard if you're passing by.

Thanks for the comments. We are excited. The wait is going to be even more difficult know our buds are already down there, away from the winter weather, partaking of good times, and enjoying the scenery.

Oh well, we will get there. And if there is snow we'll either wait it out or figure out a way around it, and if nothing else, we'll plow our way through.

I hate to wish even a day of my life away, but late January can't come a moment too soon.

Hi Don,

Sorry I'll miss your drive-bye. I'm still hanging out at Slab City.

I don't think Mike and Tracy have arrived yet.

Happy Motoring.

Michael

Who's Gracie? Is that your wife?

Mike,
I hate to question your trip plans, but shouldn't you be headed west?
